The first stage of
assembly is fairly "cut and dry". The bulkheads came out of
the sheet easily and they were mostly symmetric requiring no shaping at
this point. Some of them needed card stock shims to fill slight gaps
at the false keel.
The sub decking is a little flimsy but I'll firm that up
while I'm applying the deck planks. This picture shows the false
keel with its bulkheads and sub-deck ready to go. The shaping blocks
have been installed on the bow and stern.
